UPDATE: Dontay Moch Has Broken Fifth Metatarsal Bone In Foot

During Cincinnati's 31-point loss to the Detroit Lions on Friday, Bengals third-round pick Dontay Moch was carted off the field. After the game Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said that the linebacker's foot "was in a cast" and that "he is going to get more tests on Saturday." Our own Joe Goodberry is hearing that the foot is indeed broken and that he could be out for at least eight week. 

UPDATE: Kevin Goheen of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that Moch told teammates that he broke his "fifth metatarsal bone" in his right foot during Detroit's first series.

The Bengals selected Moch in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Nevada. Largely considered a pass rusher, the Bengals were planning on using Moch as a special teams player that contributes to the pass rush on obvious passing downs. If the reported injury turns out true and he's out for significant time, this just adds to the overall injury issues facing the linebacker position this year.

Keith Rivers had surgery that was reportedly a procedure to "rebuild his wrist" and that his return is unknown, though speculation is that it could be midway through the season before he returns. Roddrick Muckelroy suffered a season-ending injury during the Bengals first training camp session.
